Beautiful H & Co. Selb Bavaria 1915 Hand Painted "Red Bleeding Heart & Wild Pink Roses" 10-1/2" Vases by Early Chicago Artist, "Ida Sommer"
Wonderfully decorated are these two outstanding vintage hand painted H & Co. Selb Bavaria Floral Vases by the listed early Chicago Artist, "Ida Sommer".
Ida Sommer was an early professional Chicago China Decorator & Artist. She successfully ran her own listed Chicago Decorating Studio from 1915-16 producing wonderful professionally decorated hand painted China for the huge demanding Chicago market. She competed against the largest and finest China Decorating Studios of the day......including Pickard, Donath, Brauer, Stouffer, & Osborne. Sommer is a listed professional china decorator and is noted in Alan Reed’s Pickard Collectors Book.
I am pleased to individually offer these two beautiful vintage hand painted Floral Vases. Both Vases came from a recent Chicago area Estate and have been together as a pair for some 100 years. One of the hand painted Floral Vases displays lifelike "Wild Pink Roses" Flowers on stem & leaf against a background of shadow leafing & background colors of light cream green and light cream brown. A heavy gilded gold outer top adds to the beauty of this outstanding art creation. The Vase measures 10-1/2" tall, with a base measuring 4" wide [5-1/2" wide from kiddie corner to kiddie corner], with a top opening of 3". The 2nd Vase, with the same exact dimensions, displays beautiful "Red Bleeding Heart" Flowers against a background of shadow leafing & background colors of cream and shades of green. A heavy gilded gold outer top adds to the beauty of this gorgeous art creation.
Both Selb Bavaria hand painted Floral Vases are in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage. The gold is excellent on both Vases.
Both "Red Bleeding Heart & Wild Pink Roses" hand painted Vases display an early "H & Co. Selb Bavaria" mark and are individually signed by the early Chicago Artist, "Ida Sommer".
You have a choice of Vases.
